How to be a good parent is a question asked by most parents. Indian parenting has its own challenges that are specific to our country’s culture, social milieu, family system, morals, and values.
Written by Ramendra Kumar (Ramen), an award winning author with 30 books to his credit, Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm is a must have book for parents which suggests a fresh avatar for them, with a bundle of stories, anecdotes and lively, useful parenting tips and advice on positive parenting - all hewn together in a delightful palette. It guides you on how to be a good parent without being didactic.
This parenting book is written in a reader friendly style and is peppered with parenting advice through slice of life incidents which are sure to touch a chord in most readers. It is not just a book on Indian parenting, it applies to every parent who wishes to see his/her child grow up to be a confident, compassionate and healthy human being.
Effective Parenting offers useful tips for parents that encourage you to grow, learn and change with the times we are living in. During the time of our parents and grandparents parenting was no big deal. In fact, in almost all cases it was a shared responsibility.
Since then the onslaught of change has created a new society and a new value system. The responsibility of bringing up the child now rests squarely on the parents. This apart, the expectations of the parents from the child and vice versa have increased phenomenally. With one and increasingly more often both parents busy in search of the 9 to 5 (or is it 9 to 9!) utopia, the situation is becoming a 'pressure-cooker' one.
This is a parenting book for parents that suggest few essential parenting tips for the new age parent. A make over which requires he/she to be a Memory-Maker, an Empathy Emperor, A Humour Promoter, A Sports Catalyst and a Guru of Values.

I think after reading this book, I am more attached with my 4 year old son. Stories of this books are really touching and teach us how we can spend more quality time with our child.
Manan, my son also showed interest in listening the short stories of this book. So, this parenting book is not only for parents, but for children as well.
Studies world over have identified four major parenting styles: permissive, authoritarian, authoritative, and hands-off. Of these styles, child development experts have found that the authoritative parenting style is the most successful in raising children who are both academically strong and emotionally stable.
Can, therefore, authoritative parenting be same as effective parenting? Ramendra Kumar has the answer to this. ‘Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm’ suggests five pillars of effective parenting namely: sharing, caring, fun and joy, healthy living and invaluable values. The book, as the blurb says, is based on ideas ‘culled from the author’s own experiences as a child from a broken home, his observations as a writer for children and his struggles as a parent.’
What makes the book interesting is it comes from a father rather than a mother. The author agrees that the frame work he offers is only suggestive in nature and possibly will serve the reader as ‘unobtrusive guide as one journeys across the tough terrain of parenting.’ The book is a hands-on approach to parenting and the author believes that it can ‘morph a good parent to into the best parent.’ This is an unusual book in the sense that it is unstructured and there is a free flow of words, ideas and experiences.
A book full of anecdotes, quotes, poems and short stories has a foreword by Dr. Anupam Thakur who is a faculty member at University of Toronto and a child psychiatrist himself. Effective Parenting has been well received in India and has gone for a reprint.
Ramendra Kumar is a national award winning author with two dozen books that are mostly aimed at youngsters. His books have been translated into a few foreign languages and have been recommended as supplementary readers in the CBSE curriculum.
Modern parenting isn’t a “one size fits all” recipe, but a task that is as diverse as the way two separate people take different routes to get to the same destination. As Mr Kumar puts it, to be effective, the parent today has to be a Memory-Maker,a Juggler,a Humor Promoter ,a Sports catalyst and a Guru of Values.
Using effective discipline strategies that work with modern kids, striking a balance between occupation and family time, deriving contentment from the family, surviving during periods of crises and teaching smart-n-safe technology use to kids remain the biggest challenges of modern parenting.
Effective Parenting… is an indispensable book for all fathers on tenterhooks. Kumar writes honestly and earnestly. His sense of humor will surely bring a huge relief to hassled parents.
The best thing of this book is the author’s storytelling style. I appreciate author for this.
